Boy Becomes Deadhead
I had first seen the Grateful Dead when I was 15, in 1979, but this was way different... Reno, spring of '82, was really the first show where I came to understand... I was now 17, a senior in a boarding school in the Sierras about an hour outside of Reno, so we convinced the schools headmaster and senior advisors (who loved the GD, so that part was easy) to let us see them for our "Senior Concert Trip." And boy was it ever a trip!! We were front row, with a great view of the stage and Brent's knees, a drop of some kind liquid, and cute girls next to us feeding us peeled oranges the whole time. The Boys played a great show, including the only "Dear Prudence" jam the Grateful Dead ever played. Being in Reno there was a western theme to the night, replete with all the classics, or so it seemed to my young dosed mind. It made for an epic entry into the realm known as the Grateful Dead, and I have never been the same since.

If I had a nickle for every tape I had that sounded like this one back in the day...

that explains it
I was a senior in high school and lost all my friends and was convinced that there were helicopters flying around in the auditorium. Maybe explained by reno law enforcement being present or maybe i was one of the exceptionally wasted people. Maybe both. Somehow I found the hotel room. And made it to Davis for the show the next day where there was an incredible Bird Song.

I seem to recall that the show got weird after Reno Law Enforcement appeared on the main floor and hauled off a few folks who were just too wasted.
It warranted One Less Saturday Night...

I thought I'd trawled out all the hot '82 - but I just heard the Stranger -> Franklin's, and I'm stunned! Stranger takes a bit to get going, but the final jam is sizzling and weird, and the Franklin's Tower is totally over the top! The tunes is taken at a very fast clip, and Jerry goes absolutely bananas and the second and third jams - seriously, worth the price of the show, if not the whole tour. Get it! A good sounding Aud too, very sparkly, tons of highs, if a bit thin down low.

I drove 2000 miles for these two shows from Denver, with 2 near death pass crossings in Cali and Utah, still made it back for work Monday! This is a good recording of a pretty good show. I remember the energy being really good onstage from midway through the first set through the Franklins. The energy level just seemed to drop off from there.

WILD SHOW - the boys forgot to play Sat. night
This was really a very odd show - very wild energy. they forgot to play One More Saturday night which I think most of us only realized later that night. They opened the next night in Davis with it.

Jerry on Speed?
If you like your Jerry solos a little more up tempo this is the tape to get. Not the best quality but like a lot of early '80's shows there are not too many SBDs available so this is probably all we have to go by. This is some of the quickest Jerry I have ever heard. Especially on the Stranger>Franklins. Also a couple teases not mentioned on the list: He's Gone before Eyes and Dear Prudence before Black Peter.
